Get together with family and friends for cake, a cuppa and a catch up to raise funds for Haven House. If you like to bake, celebrating a special occasion or just looking for time to relax and catch up then The Big Tea Par-Tea is for you. After all, any day is a good excuse to eat cake!

For an evening Par-Tea with a difference why not channel your inner 1920's movie idol, gangster or flapper and have a Big Prohibition Tea Par-Tea. Invite your friends, dress to impress and drink your favourite tipple from a teacup!

It really is your tea par-tea your way.

Sign up today for your free fundraising kit, with lots of tips and fun resources to help you host your Big Tea Par-Tea.


You can also download our bunting (pdf1.55mb), cake bingo card (pdf 3.4mb)  and invitations (pdf 1.54mb) to add to the fun of your Big Tea Par-Tea.

We are delighted that Amy-Beth Ellice, author of Amy's Baking Year and regular contributor for OK magazine, is fronting our campaign.

Why not try Amy-Beth's delicious Chocolate Orange Whoopie Pies

You don't have to be an expert at baking, so don't let that hold you back; you can create some 'easy mix' or 'no bake cakes or even pop to your local supermarket to buy some. As long as there are cakes on the table, tea in the pot and friends in the room your have everything you need to host a Big Tea Par-Tea.

You can download recipes for an easy mix lemon drizzle cake and a 'no bake' chocolate and marshmallow biscuit cake here.

By getting involved, raising money and creating memories with your loved ones, you will be helping the life-limited children we care for and their families to create precious memories of their own. 

Sometimes you never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory - enjoy making yours...

We didn't realise we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun.
